Defensive Tackle

Alabama

Player Overview:

A’Shawn Robinson looks like a grown man and was mistaken for a coach by some guys when he got to Tuscaloosa in 2013. He also plays like a grown man on the field, using his superhuman strength and great athleticism to always find a way into the opponent’s backfield. He is the ideal “plug” in any defensive front, and is the guy to look out for on Alabama’s revamped defense in 2015 .

Robinson is also one of the most talked about 2016 prospects on every draft board. He is ranked the #1 defensive tackle for many experts and just watching his film it is easy to see why.
